Someone telling me what to do is never up for debate. I alone, decide what that will be.
I call my own shots.
If ever I am in a postition that does not allow me to exercise my free will at all times, predictably, that situation is going to end badly.
In somewhat of a heated exchange a few weeks ago, a women said to me, "I don't own this. I'm not free to do what I want."
Well, that's the difference between you and me.
I do own.
I am free to do what I want.
Should I have spoken all my mind, it would have gone like this- I honestly think you're a worker drone ass kisser who has every minute of every day dictated for you by someone else.
There is nothing about your life that I admire, nor would aspire.
I find you uninteresting, room temperature at best, and immediately bland. No spark. No creativity. A big bunch of bleh on a plate.
Everything you do is with the herd. No individuality. And furthermore, if I had it to do over again, I would have played it the same way.
This coming week, Entrepreneur Chick is being interviewed on a radio show- people ask me all the time, "Can anyone be an entrepreneur?"
My answer? No.
If you find that someone telling you what to do is the most distasteful and detestable thing you could possibly imagine- if you've been fired from several jobs for not getting your way, than I'd say you're probably an entrepreneur. With the right type of hard work, vision and grit, big money could be just around the corner in about ten years.
Yes, ten years.
Nothing is easy and nothing is quick.
Here are fifteen other signs that you might access as to how well matched you are at being a true, dyed in the wool, ain't nobody gonna boss you around entrepreneur:
1.Your business is your life and your passion
2.You take action then think about it
3.You don’t like people telling you what to do
4.You dream about your business
5.You always find new ways to do everything
6.You hate small talk
7.You don’t actually read fine print or long contracts
8.You expect things to happen instantly
9.You hate waiting in line
10.You don’t like meetings
11.You look forward to your workday
12.You have a ten minute attention span
13.You don’t read long emails
14.You write short emails and people think you’re blunt
15.You hate hearing that you’re wrong
P.S. I actually enjoy meetings because I always learn something new and more often than not, someone ends up handing me a check at the end.
I expect things to happen quicky, but have learned, alas, that they do not. Slow and steady really does win the race.
